I rebuild all of the brakes on the goat. I put in all NOS wheel cylinder, new rubber lines, etc. NOS master cylinder as well.

Are you supposed to prime that in any way before pouring fluid in and bleeding down brakes? I had a **** of a time trying to get the brakes to bleed, but they would not. If i had a bleeder valve open, and my brother pumped the brakes, fluid would shoot out of the valve. but if i closed it, and be pumped, the fluid would come shooting out of the top of the master cylinder. I have NO clogs, and I can turn air pressure down to 5PSI and blow through the lines after disconnecting them from the master cylinder, and they freeflow just fine. I am stumped.

Since the brake system is not much different than any dual circuit light truck, I would “bench bleed” the master cyl to make sure no air is trapped in there.
